Details: Product Description It’s wintertime in the Hamptons, where a young couple, Scott and his wife, Elise, are staying at the home of her terminally ill father, awaiting the inevitable. As weeks turn to months, the fault lines in their marriage start to show and Scott, bored and left to his own devices, decides to sneak into the seemingly vacant house next door. Exhilarated by his transgression, he soon convinces Elise to join him for a return visit, but their decision leads to a shocking discovery. As deep-buried secrets come to the fore and it becomes clear that things are not as they seem, Scott and Elise soon find themselves trapped in a deliriously wicked spiral of infidelity and violence. A scathing and exhilarating psychological thriller, The Winter Girl is a story of bad decisions, shocking revelations, and the secrets between a husband and wife. Review “Devilishly good. . . . A marital thriller more scary than Gone Girl.” — The Washington Post “So creepy you want to take a shower after reading it.” — Newsday “A page-turner. Once the surprises start coming out, it’s hard to put down.” —New York Daily News   “Marinovich has crafted a riveting, gruesome and dark story as chilling as the winter landscape.” — The Free Lance-Star “The slow, relaxed pace is perfect for building this almost ghostly, frightening tale. . . . As if stringed instruments are playing in the background, readers will feel dizzy with alarm and the feeling of foreboding that builds the thrills and chills perfectly.” — Suspense Magazine   “A psychological noir thriller. . . . One shocking surprise leads to the next, culminating in mayhem and revelations of twisted family secrets.” — The Sacramento Bee   “ The Winter Girl is a dark and ever darkening psychological thriller.” — Kirkus Reviews   “Sharp and delightfully treacherous. . . . This is one of the leanest, meanest books I’ve read in a long, long time. I suspect Jim Thompson would’ve loved it. James M. Cain, too. And Patricia Highsmith. That’s how great this book is.” —Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan   “A sexy update of Hitchcock’s Rear Window.” — Travel + Leisure   “The twists are clever and the pacing relentless.” — Booklist   “Unsettling but oh so fulfilling.” — Sag Harbor Express   “Family secrets and marital transgressions weave a suspenseful Hitchcockian story of intrigue, mystery, and deceit.” — Library Journal   “[ The Winter Girl], like an impending winter storm, is filled with menace and the threat of destruction. . . . The story builds to a crescendo of murder and betrayal.” — The East Hampton Star   “An engrossing, disquieting read.” — Publishers Weekly   “Watching this husband and wife steadily get in deeper and deeper is almost as thrilling as trespassing.” — BookPage   “An unnerving and entertaining story.” — Shelf-Awareness About the Author Matt Marinovich is the author of Strange Skies and lives in Brooklyn. He has taught fiction and nonfiction at Emerson College, Baruch College, and New York University.

They turned off at 11:00 p.m. every night, as if some ritualistic loner decided to go to bed at the exact same minute every evening. I remember I looked out our kitchen window one night and I said something to Elise about no one really living there. It was early December and we were staying at her father’s place in Shinnecock Hills, about halfway between Hampton Bays and Southampton. His house, like the others on Ocean View Road, faced the bay. In the distance, you could see that thin strip of sand where the most expensive houses were. Green and red l
